Which Spray Adhesive?

I am wanting to put latex backed carpet on the side walls of the trunk in my 38 Lafayette street rod to match floor and seat backing. It presently has the orginal burlap, which is starting to deterioate. I plan to strip off as much of the old stuff as possible. What brand of spray adhesive gives the best results? Who wants to come over and do it!! THANKS...DAVE

Consider using panel adhesive instead of spray adhesive. Comes in caulking-like tubes for less than $1, uses an inexpensive caulking gun and will hold much better than spray adhesive.

HEY WILLY: Are you saying the stuff like Liquid Nail or the tubes that are used to put paneling on walls? Will that hold up to heat generated from sun light on car? THANKS...DAVE

Yes. Get the good stuff ($1.50/tube!) and it will hold up just fine. I use it to install headliner and side wall insulation material in my rods. They make a bunch of different grades of the stuff so read the label for application. It will definitely hold up better than the spray contact adhesive that degrades over time even without heat and UV.

Whatever you do decide to use, stay away from using 3M's #77 spray adhesive. In spite of what it says, it is not permanent.

HEY BLUE: Isn't the head liner in the old truck just a piece of card board? I have a 1948 Chevy truck and the kid who used to own it made headliner out of some old shag carpet out of his dog's house. My wife won't get in truck May be thats good???DAVE

"DAN TACK" is a good one if you would like to use a spray. Don't go to Ace Hardware or Checkers. I don't know were you would find it were you live but i bought it at a place were they sell fabrics for car upholstery. It cost like $10 bucks for a 16oz can. But it's better than all spray adhesives that you find at home depot. Its called "Dan Tack Contact Spray Super Adhesive". Black , Red Can , White Cap.

Just a suggestion.

I think most of the 3M 77 goes into the air and into your arm hairs than onto the piece you are working on. That stuff seems lighter than air.

But with my experience with canned adhesive, Id go with 3M FOAMFAST. I did a headliner probably 7 years ago with it and as far as i know it still hasnt fallen down.

Ditto on the 3M 77 spray. I use it to temporarily tack paper patterns onto blocks of wood to band saw them for wood carving projects but inevitably I get my hands totally stickied up no matter how careful I try to be!
